Abstract:

Please Note: This is a new, paperback edition of a previously announced book.

This volume provides a detailed analysis of the relationships between form andfunction in spontaneous spoken language. The contributors analyse English,German and Spanish data to present a multilingual perspective on thecomplexities facing speakers in a variety of contexts. Through an examinationof the language of everyday conversation, interviews, consultations,task-based dialogues, football commentaries, radio-play productions andintercultural conversations, the book demonstrates the effect ofinformational, discourse-external and personal factors on form and shows howspeakers position themselves in relation to their discourse, orchestratedifferent tasks, move between different 'voices', and negotiate meaning. Theresult is a comprehensive analysis of the multiple layers of spontaneousspoken language. Spoken Language Pragmatics presents research that will beof interest to academics working in linguistics, applied linguistics,discourse analysis and pragmatics.
